Happy New Year! This year begins on a sour note with the state of the economy and architecture firms struggling to stay afloat. The AIANY Chapter is making an effort to help ease woes. Check out “AIANY, Center for Architecture Foundation Address Economic Woes” about its most recent initiative, Not Business As Usual, and be sure to participate in the ongoing discussion about how the architecture community can support itself in these times. Also, be sure to check the e-Oculus Classifieds for the latest job postings, and the New Deadlines section for the latest grant opportunities and competitions (including the Open Call for exhibition designers at the Center for Architecture!).
